There is little in this publication that does not appear in any of the current textbooks, while many important facts are missing. The author tries to show the difference in the quality of the urine, studied by the three glass test, in uncolored pictures. In describing the abdominal puncture of an overdistended bladder, he neglects to mention the dangers of this procedure and how to evade them, especially the possibility of injuring intestinal loops. The recommendation, in urologic operation, of the use of chloroform in preference to ether will not be popular with American surgeons. While much space is devoted to the Ambard constant, discarded as valueless by many clinicians, the modern physiologic renal tests are hardly mentioned.
